CSMA/CD

Problem is that a lot of traffic doesn't gracefully back off in case of a CS, interpreting MA as My Access. And CD, while working in a way, has rather a large time delay between the actual C and any traffic rerouting required, never mind that the involved cars only rarely manage to get retransmitted.
